  • प्यारी तेरौ बदन अमृत की पंक, तामैं बींधे नैन द्वै।
    चित चल्यौ काढ़न कौं, बिकुच संधि संपुट में रह्यौ भ्वै॥
    बहुत उपाइ आहि री प्यारी, पै न करत स्वै।
    श्रीहरिदास के स्वामी स्यामा-कुंजबिहारी ऐसैं ही रह्यौ ह्वै॥7॥ [राग कान्हरौ]

  • प्यारी जू जैसैं तेरी आँखिन में हौं अपनपौ-देखत हौं, ऐसैं तुम देखति हौ किधौं नाहीं?
    हौं तोसौं कहौं प्यारे आँखि मूँदि रहौं, तौ लाल निकसि कहाँ जाहीं?
    मौकौं निकसिबे कौं ठौर बतावौ, साँची कहौ बलि जाहुँ लागौं पाँहीं।
    श्रीहरिदास के स्वामी स्यामा-तुमहिं देख्यौ चाहत और सुख लागत काँहीं॥6॥ [राग कान्हरौ]

  • इत-उत काहे कौं सिधारति, आंखिन आगैं ही तू आव।
    प्रीति कौ हितु हौं तौ तेरौ जानौ, ऐसौई राखि सुभाव।
    अमृत से बचन जिय की प्रकृति-सों मिलैं ऐसौई दै दाव।
    श्रीहरिदास के स्वामी स्याम कहत री प्यारी, प्रीति को मंगल गाव॥5॥ [ राग कान्हरौ]

  • जोरी विचित्र बनाई री माई, काहू मन के हरन कौं।
    चितवत दृष्टि टरत नहिं इत-उत, मन-बच-क्रम याही संग भरन कौं॥
    ज्यौं घन-दामिनि संग रहत नित, बिछुरत नाहिंन और बरन कौं।
    श्रीहरिदास के स्वामी स्यामा-कुंजबिहारी न टरन कौं॥4॥ [राग कान्हरौ]

  • ऐसैं ही देखत रहौं, जनम सुफ़ल करि मानौं।
    प्यारे की भाँवती, भाँवती जू के प्रान-प्यारे, जुगलकिसोरहिं जानौं॥
    छिनु न टरौं, पल हौंहुँ न इत-उत, रहौं एक ही तानौं।
    श्रीहरिदास के स्वामी स्यामा-कुंजबिहारी मन-रानौं॥3॥ [राग कान्हरौ]

  • आज रावल में धूम मचाई है, कीर्ति ने आज लाली जायी है|
    श्री बरसाने में उजियारी छायी है, राधा-रानी को बधाई है बधाई है|

    श्यामा प्यारी कुञ्ज बिहारी, जय जय श्री हरिदास दुलारी|

  • रुचि के प्रकास परस्पर खेलन लागे।
    राग-रागिनी अलौकिक उपजत, नृत्य-संगीत अलग लाग लागे॥
    राग ही में रंग रह्यौ, रंग के समुद्र में ये दोउ झागे।
    श्रीहरिदास के स्वामी स्यामा-कुंजबिहारी पै रंग रह्यौ, रस ही में पागे॥2॥ [राग कान्हरौ]
